Default What do you use?

This thread is just for some tips on cleaning ur desktop.
I just wanted to know some tips on keeping the desktop neat.. Means what household items can be used to clean it..
I prefer hair blower for removing the dust from my cabinet.. and use an pencil eraser to clean my RAM.. and for other dusting I use a simple brush..
what else could be used??
and what do you all use to do this work..

No eraser on the contacts. The action of removing them and putting them back cleans the contacts.
Blow dryer doesn't have enough ass to get most dust out. Canned air is the best way.
A horse hair brush is best to keep the static down.

I use an air compressor to blast dust out of my rig.
